LYRICALLY SOFT, BUT INNOVATIVE

In the wake of his well-received debut, Metamorphosis, and his stellar production work on recent projects by labelmates Cross Movement, R Swift and Da’ TRUTH, gifted singer-songwriter JR (nee Courtney D. Peebles) saved the best for his own sophomore release, Life by Stereo. This project is an adventurous, genre-bending leap into territory once exclusive to the likes of urban gospel bad boy Tonex. Without hesitation JR throws down the gauntlet with “Intro” and “Rock Star,” boasting risky avant rhythmic and melodic shifts that reflect the influence of innovative heavy hitters like Timbaland, Pharell, and Outkast. Although much of Life by Stereo is musically congruent with Chris Brown or Usher, vocally JR practically channel’s John Legend’s new Millennial crooning style. Unfortunately, JR greatest weakness also mirrors Legend’s early penchant for embarrassingly simple, rhyme-by-numbers lyrical style.

Fortunately, when JR’s lyrics turn personal, as in the otherworldly, bossa nova-lite fantasy, “Getaway,” things turn for the better. For all the lyrical missteps, nothing changes JR’s ability to explode musical preconceptions. Of its many high points, Life by Stereo soars highest when JR fluidly shape shifts his love of Coldplay into one of the year’s most captivating worship anthems “We Need You.” With this type of versatility and talent, JR might singlehandedly close 2007 as a banner year for Urban Christian music.

    I know this album is 5 years old, but I had to review it. This is by far one of the best albums I have ever heard in my life! J.R. is a hundred times better than John Legend by far... Every song is awesome and "We Need You", I was absolutely hooked when I 1st heard it. I replayed it a countless number of times. It sounds like a mix of Psychedelic Furs & Coldplay to me. I hope he will come out with something else soon. To hear music this awesome with lyrics giving glory to ALMIGHTY GOD, is priceless. This man is anointed.

    I've never heard an album that was Christian hip hop like this. I love techno and feel that some of the songs had techno beats and rhythms. It's so nice to have a Christian Music outlet to listen to that I don't have to turn off or down when my kids are not around. My husband gave me this as a gift. We had both never owned any of his previous albums, but bought this one because my husband loves Cross Movement Records. He said that he will purchase his older albums next.
